1. Artificial corneas versus donor corneas for repeat corneal transplants. (PubMed)

Artificial corneas versus donor corneas for repeat corneal transplants. Individuals who have failed one or more full thickness penetrating keratoplasties (PKs) may be offered repeat corneal surgery using an artificial or donor cornea. An artificial or prosthetic cornea is known as a keratoprosthesis. Both donor and artificial corneal transplantations involve removal of the diseased and opaque recipient cornea (or the previously failed cornea) and replacement with another donor or prosthetic (...) cornea.To assess the effectiveness of artificial versus donor corneas in individuals who have had one or more failed donor corneal transplantations.We searched CENTRAL (which contains the Cochrane Eyes and Vision Group Trials Register) (2013, Issue 10), Ovid MEDLINE, Ovid MEDLINE In-Process and Other Non-Indexed Citations, Ovid MEDLINE Daily, Ovid OLDMEDLINE (January 1946 to November 2013), EMBASE (January 1980 to November 2013), Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature Database (LILACS

2. Exploration of alternative test methods to evaluate phototoxicity of ophthalmic agents by using Statens Seruminstitut Rabbit Cornea cell lines and 3D human reconstituted cornea models. (Full text)

Exploration of alternative test methods to evaluate phototoxicity of ophthalmic agents by using Statens Seruminstitut Rabbit Cornea cell lines and 3D human reconstituted cornea models. Many chemicals have been reported to induce phototoxicity. The absorbance of light energy within the sunlight range is a common characteristic of phototoxicity. The 3T3 NRU phototoxicity test (PT) in 3T3 mouse skin fibroblasts has been used to identify the phototoxic potential induced by excited chemicals after (...) exposure to ultra violet (UV). However, as phototoxicity may occur in ocular cells, it is necessary to develop a more suitable test for cornea-derived cells. In this study, we attempted to establish a new in vitro PT method in rabbit corneal cell lines (SIRC). We evaluated five ophthalmic agents, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, lomefloxacin, norfloxacin, and tetracycline, for their cytotoxic potential and in vitro phototoxicity. The results obtained using 3D human corneal models revealed that the UV

6. Case of progressive hyperopia due to flattening of cornea (Full text)

Case of progressive hyperopia due to flattening of cornea To report a case that had a progressive decrease in the visual acuity caused by a progressive increase in the hyperopia due to a flattening of the cornea.A 50-year-old woman complained of decreased vision in both eyes. Her decimal best-corrected visual acuity was 1.2 in the right and 0.5 in the left eyes, and the refractive error (spherical equivalent) was +3.75 diopters (D) for the right eye and +6.5 D for the left eye. Slit-lamp (...) examinations showed clear corneas but Descemet's folds and fine pigmentations and opacities were present beneath the corneal epithelium in both eyes. Analysis of the corneal shape by anterior segment optical coherence tomography showed that the corneas were flattened, and the corneal refractive power was decreased in both eyes. The large values of the higher-order aberration in the cornea and total eye displayed bilateral irregular astigmatism. She obtained good vision by wearing hard contact lenses

7. A new worm infiltrating the human cornea: A report of three cases (Full text)

A new worm infiltrating the human cornea: A report of three cases To characterize a new species of parasitic nematode that triggers uveitis.Three previously healthy, relatively young people each contracted a corneal stromal nematode that, upon surgical removal and examination, did not match any known nematodes. Clinical ocular findings included corneal opacification, visible corneal worms, conjunctival injection, and uveitis.The three cases presented here represent a previously undescribed (...) parasitic infection of the cornea by an unidentified nematode. These findings may represent a previously unrecognized zoonotic infection from wildlife sources and potentially a newly documented nematode requiring description. Future clinical findings regarding this newly described nematode are needed to further develop our understanding of the disease.

8. In situ cornea harvesting through the Red Cross Organization: a new approach to relieving severe cornea donor shortage in Chinese eye banks (Full text)

In situ cornea harvesting through the Red Cross Organization: a new approach to relieving severe cornea donor shortage in Chinese eye banks Corneal diseases are currently the second main cause of blindness in China. Although most of the corneal blindness could be treated by corneal transplantation, only about 10 000 operations were carried out each year owing to the severe shortage of corneal donors and limited eye bank programs. A feasible cornea donation program was established through (...) the organization of the Red Cross, and in situ corneal removal techniques were developed to avoid conflicts with Chinese traditions of keeping the deceased intact. The number of donated corneas, which had a safe and secure quality, increased significantly year by year.

10. Semaphorin3A induces nerve regeneration in the adult cornea-a switch from its repulsive role in development. (Full text)

Semaphorin3A induces nerve regeneration in the adult cornea-a switch from its repulsive role in development. The peripheral sensory nerves that innervate the cornea can be easily damaged by trauma, surgery, infection or diabetes. Several growth factors and axon guidance molecules, such as Semaphorin3A (Sema3A) are upregulated upon cornea injury. Nerves can regenerate after injury but do not recover their original density and patterning. Sema3A is a well known axon guidance and growth cone (...) repellent protein during development, however its role in adult cornea nerve regeneration remains undetermined. Here we investigated the neuro-regenerative potential of Sema3A on adult peripheral nervous system neurons such as those that innervate the cornea. First, we examined the gene expression profile of the Semaphorin class 3 family members and found that all are expressed in the cornea. However, upon cornea injury there is a fast increase in Sema3A expression. We then corroborated that Sema3A

12. CCR2+ migratory macrophages with M1 status are the early-responders in the cornea of HSV-1 infected mice. (Full text)

CCR2+ migratory macrophages with M1 status are the early-responders in the cornea of HSV-1 infected mice. Complex interactions between HSV-1 and infiltrating immune cells play important roles in establishing localized, acute virus replication as well as chronic latent infection. The extent and duration of initial virus replication are the key determinants of subsequent pathologic inflammatory responses and therefore, the accumulation of immune cell populations at this time point is a key target

17. Opposing Effects of Neuropilin-1 and -2 on Sensory Nerve Regeneration in Wounded Corneas: Role of Sema3C in Ameliorating Diabetic Neurotrophic Keratopathy. (PubMed)

Opposing Effects of Neuropilin-1 and -2 on Sensory Nerve Regeneration in Wounded Corneas: Role of Sema3C in Ameliorating Diabetic Neurotrophic Keratopathy. The diabetic cornea exhibits pathological alterations such as delayed epithelial wound healing and nerve regeneration. We sought to investigate the role of Semaphorin (SEMA) 3C in corneal wound healing and re-innervation in normal and diabetic B6 mice. Wounding induced the expression of SEMA3A, 3C and their receptor Neuropilin (NRP) 2 (...) , but not NRP1 in normal corneal epithelial cells (CECs); this upregulation was suppressed for SEMA3C and NRP2 in diabetic corneas. Injections of Sema3C-specific siRNA and NRP2 neutralizing antibodies in wounded mice resulted in a decrease in the rate of wound healing and regenerating nerve fibers, while exogenous SEMA3C had opposing effects in diabetic corneas. NRP1 neutralization, on the other hand, decreased epithelial wound closure but increased sensory nerve regeneration in diabetic corneas, suggesting
